Fly Tying

A little challenge...

Recommended Posts

Tie a fly with one feather, or one of whatever unit the material is in. If you want to, try to catch a fish on it. Be resourceful, for example you could use the softer part on the bottom of a hackle feather and dub it.

Not much of a challenge for me. I already catch a lot of fish on a Stewart's Black Spider, which is just a starling feather.

Or you suggesting that no thread be involved?

And if you're allowing thread, there's all sorts of soft hackles that use nothing but one feather and thread.

It can have thread and could be a soft hackle but try to make it as complex as possible with as little materials as possible.

And I've caught fish on it just like that.
